April 16, 2012 Dear Justice and Peace friends:
What do the cities of Cajamarca, Peru and Denver, Colorado have in common? The Newmont Mining Corporation! Yes, the Denver-based corporation, Newmont, operates one of the largest gold mines of the world in Cajamarca.
Very impressive…except for a big problem: the people of Cajamarca oppose the vociferous expansion of the mine; the massive destruction and contamination of their water and environment; the extermination of their agricultural industry; the decline of their health; the growth of poverty in the region; the increased violence and human rights violations–all because of irresponsible gold-mining by Newmont.
That’s why DJPC’s MineWatch project needs your help. Can you join us in telling Coloradans about Newmont’s shady operation in Cajamarca? Schedule a MineWatch presentation at your church or school, in your home or at a civic organization to which you belong.
Thank you for your donation and participation.
For a more just and peaceful world,
DJPC Program Director
